It's Meryl Streep's 66th birthday. Have you noticed that Meryl's supposed "superfans" spend a lot of time lionizing her but remaining unspecific about what makes her performances and movies so good? Let's change that. To celebrate Meryl's birthday, let's remind ourselves how we can be less basic when it comes to appreciating her work. I'm tired of people screaming "She Is Perfection!!!" and the leaving their appraisal at that. She's a significant artist we can always appreciate more. 1. Know that "A Cry in the Dark" is Meryl's most prescient film. "The dingo ate my baby." It's not a comedic line; it's a woman screaming when she learns an animal has killed her child. "A Cry in the Dark" is perhaps the most misremembered movie in Meryl's filmography, a damning portrait of frenzied trial coverage and how sensational news can ruin an innocent person's reputation. As Lindy Chamberlain, Meryl finds »

Animal lovers, a teaser trailer for the animated feature The Secret Life of Pets has been unveiled.
The promo offers a glimpse at what all of the pets in a Manhattan apartment building get up to when their owners go to work.
But he has bigger problems to deal with, as a rabbit named Snowball (Kevin Hart) is preparing an army of abandoned pets to launch an attack.
Illumination's first look at "The Secret Life of Pets" (Chris Renaud) looked promising, as comedy voice actors Louis Ck, Kevin Hart, Lake Bell, Jenny Slate, Dana Carvey, Steve Coogan and Albert Brooks show us what pets do when their masters close the door every morning. One loyal mastiff waits by the door. A bird opens up its cage and flies free. A very fat cat tries to resist the temptation to raid the refrigerator--and fails. A bulldog repeatedly barks and throws itself at the window as a squirrel flits outside. A cat changes the music from classical to punk. The movie has moved from February 2016 to July 2016.

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...
Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.
Without further ado...
23 Jump Street
Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »
Like all superheroes (or anyone else who uses a secret identity), there came a moment when someone finally cracked the code and published my real name. To be fair, my identity was a pretty poorly-kept secret by that point. The first time I went to an actual press event, I used my real name, and anytime I met someone, I used my real name. "Moriarty" was a fun identity to slip into, and especially in the early days of the site, we played up the mythology of things. My friends all got their own spy names and would show up in the reports in the form of Henchman Mongo and Segue Zagnut and Harry Lime and more. From my end, it was silly and fun, and not something to be taken seriously. But when Film Threat ran a fairly vicious hit piece on Harry, I was also a target, and »

Of course we’ve all wondered what our pets do when we leave them alone in the house. And now the folks behind the extremely successful Despicable Me films will answer that question for us in what looks to be a delightful and fun film, according to this first trailer for The Secret Life of Pets. Here’s the synopsis:
Taking place in a Manhattan apartment building, Max’s life as a favorite pet is turned upside down, when his owner brings home a sloppy mongrel named Duke. They have to put their quarrels behind when they find out that an adorable white bunny named Snowball is building an army of abandoned pets determined to take revenge on all happy-owned pets and their owners.
Ahead of its release later this month in the UK, Universal and Illumination Entertainment have released another trailer for The Secret Life of Pets, an animated movie that explores the activities of household pets when their owners are at work.
Check out the trailer below:
Comedy superstars Louis C.K., Eric Stonestreet and Kevin Hart make their animated feature-film debuts in The Secret Life of Pets, which co-stars Ellie Kemper, Lake Bell, Jenny Slate, Bobby Moynihan, Hannibal Buress and Albert Brooks.

Illumination Entertainment scored a huge hit in its Despicable Me franchise (which has a new installment, Minions, out this summer) but the animation studio is still looking to expand with other original films. Now, the teaser for its latest venture, The Secret Life of Pets, has arrived, providing a highly promising look at a pic with one of the best kid-friendly premises we’ve seen in quite some time (Inside Out excluded).
The pic explores the lives of several New York City pets after their owners have departed for work or school, imagining what crazy (or innocuous, in Max the Dog’s case) adventures the animals get up to. Directed by Chris Renaud (Despicable Me) and Yarrow Cheney, it looks reliant on physical comedy but also boasts a huge voice cast, including Jenny Slate, Louis C.K., Bobby Moynihan, Kevin Hart, Eric Stonestreet, Ellie Kemper, Lake Bell, Hannibal Buress and Albert Brooks. »

Twenty years ago Pixar Animation Studios released their first feature-length film: Toy Story. It was the first completely computer generated film out there and changed everything. Every other studio making animated films has been trying to catch up to them, not only in terms of technological achievements but in crafting stories that make everyone old and young laugh, cry, and thrilled. Not every single film they've made has been a home run, but their track record thus far has been pretty impressive. This year's release Inside Out is no exception, arriving as the fifteenth feature in the animation house's stable. Given the occasion, I've taken it upon myself to rank Pixar's first fifteen features to settle once and for all what is the best and worst from the studio. I contemplated bringing in the short films that precede each of their features, as many are just exquisite if not better than the films they accompany, »

The trailer reveals that pets don’t do what owners expect when they’re away. One of the more memorable bits features a dachshund getting a massage from blender blades.

Chris Renaud, who has directed both “Despicable Me” movies, is the director of “Secret Life,” which is co-directed by Yarrow Cheney from a script by Brian Lynch, Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio. Producers are Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy.

A doggone good voice cast highlights Despicable Me producer Illumination Entertainment’s The Secret Life Of Pets, which dropped its first look today. The Universal Pictures animated pic has a July 8, 2016 release date and answers the question of what your pets do when you leave them at home for the day (hint: they don’t do windows). Louis C.K., Eric Stonestreet, Kevin Hart, Ellie Kemper, Lake Bell, Jenny Slate, Bobby Moynihan, Hannibal Buress and Albert Brooks chip in for… »
Featuring a fantastic cast of comedy talent, including Louis C.K., Kevin Hart, Steve Coogan, Albert Brooks, Ellie Kemper, Lake Bell, Modern Family’s Eric Stonestreet, and SNL’s Bobby Moynihan, Illumination Entertainment are following up this years Minions with The Secret Life of Pets, a title which pretty much explains all you need to know really. It’s a really simple premise, but it is executed so well here, and Illumination are definitely onto a winner. They pack in an amazing amount of jokes into this nearly three minute trailer, and every one hits of them hits the mark (the final gag has to be my favourite). With this and Minions looking so promising, the next two years could be very good indeed for the animation studio. Released: 24th June (Irl/U.K.)/ 8th July (U.S.) »

Illumination Entertainment has released the first teaser trailer for the new animated film The Secret Life of Pets, and it’s kind of great. Directed by Chris Renaud (Despicable Me) and Yarrow Cheney, the comedy imagines the lives our pets lead after we leave for work or school each day, focusing on the tenants of an apartment building in New York City. The physical comedy here is really on point, and though I’d be totally happy with a dialogue-free version of the film, a voice cast that includes Louis C.K., Jenny Slate, and Bobby Moynihan is icing on the cake. This is Illumination’s first non-Despicable Me film since 2012’s disappointing Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, but it really looks like they have a winner on their hands. With this summer’s Minions also looking extremely promising, could the studio have found its niche in dialogue-light animation? Check out the teaser trailer, »
